Let your love be greater than your fear…

“Let your love be greater than your fear.”

In this moment, I feel a calm peace in my heart after feeling the pain of what felt like a heart attack….a stabbing tightness in my chest, accompanied by anxiety and fear.

In order for my heart to stop hurting, I had to let myself be still. I had to breathe deeply to find the place in my heart where love is greater than fear.

I’ve done a lot of trauma and grief work these last few years. It’s been a roller coaster. I’ve cried and panicked a lot, but I’ve also been smiling bigger and laughing more, letting others love me more, accepting I can’t do it all alone.

The key has been to let go, surrender, and let real love in, something very difficult for me. Real love can be scary, because I know the pain of losing it at a young age.

I am stubborn. I don’t always ask for help. I make a lot of mistakes. I push others away. So, if you’ve been determined enough to love me anyway, I just have to say this now….

Thank you for opening your heart to me.

Thank you for sharing a piece of your soul .

Thank you for encouraging me and praying for me.

Thank you for being a part of my soul journey.

Thank you for helping me find my way back to love.

With love,

Ruth Renee
